Seeking Student Leaders! 

Student Liaison

Have you thought about stepping up and becoming a student leader with the NASW-Illinois Chapter? The NASW-Illinois Chapter Student Network Shared Interest Group (SIG) addresses the interests and needs of our student members. With the coming new school year, the NASW-Illinois Chapter is looking for students volunteers to serve as student liaisons for the 2018–2019 school year! Take part in your professional organization!

Apply to become a student liaison! 

What does an NASW-Illinois Chapter Student Liaison do?

  • Liaisons serve as a vital point of contact between the NASW-Illinois Chapter and schools. Liaisons will help with the organizing and promotion of possible trips to campus by the NASW-Illinois Chapter for candid talks with students identifying student needs as well as presentations about NASW membership, licensure, and networking events.
  • Liaisons also serve as contacts for their school for the annual Advocacy Day which will take place in spring 2019 (exact date TBA). Since a date cannot be announced until the spring legislative session is announced, student liaisons will help keep their school abreast of important news relating to Advocacy Day as well as organizing their school attendees on the day of the event.
